Welcome to the Caving Club at Indiana University!

The Caving Club at Indiana University (CCIU) provides a safe and educational atmosphere where students, faculty, staff and community members of all experience levels can learn responsible caving practices with opportunities to visit caves around the area. We provide members with resources for caving and experiences for personal advancement through leadership roles, conservation, surveying, community involvement, and rescue.

Next Meeting: Thursday, February 2 at 7:30 pm in Geology room 143.

We meet the first Thursday of every month at 7:30pm in Geology room 143 (except for January and May through August). Our meetings have programs on a wide array of cave-related subjects. We encourage our members to share their caving experiences and offer input on what the club does.

Dues are $20 per calendar year. These dues include use of club gear (helmets and helmet-mounted lights) and the opportunity to go on CCIU-led caving trips. You must be a paid member prior to participating in any club trips.
